Presidential Office Building, Taipei
(3.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos. Use our Taipei family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Presidential Office Building and other attractions in Taipei.

  • Great structure but you only get to observe it from a distance. You are just allowed to take pictures from across the street. The plainclothes guard will shoo you away if you too close. 
  • Personal no reservations from 9:00 1 time every venue and HP was written because at 9:00 prior to arrival. Groups of high school students in Japan, hundreds of people waiting to finish the inspection already after about an hour. Several individuals and groups of high school students in a tour on the staff of the Japan language (elderly people). A high school student group of local tour operators "from high school students have no interest in me rounded up as soon as possible" and thwarted. There was high school exactly hear the description. Excursion season is not recommended. You should either line up as soon as possible. Limited places can be visited, but brave, luxury building in the Ballets. There is a post office in buying stamps, can put out the letter.

  • Impressive stately RedBrick building with white stone. There is a small public art gallery with changing exhibitions in the Interior of the Office building.

  • This is president's office. It is an old building built in 1919 by Japanese. Sometime it will be open to public during weekend or holidays. Check its schedule on official website for more details. There are photo shoot platforms in front of the building. Go there and you will get a better photo. The building looks different when day and night, and I like it personally when lights on

  • Nice building, built by Japanese for their governor.
  • Thanks to president Ma, president Tsai, so that we can have a better Taiwan. I love you guys.
  • Historical site. A must-see.
